A different look at Aesop's "The Travelers and the Purse".

What your parents did't tell you.

Once upon a time two travelers found each other’s company while walking towards a town gathering. As they were walking, one of them noticed a purse on the ground. He picked it up and found shinning diamonds in it. Peeking from his side his companion said “Fucking Christ! We’re rich!”.

“No sir, I am rich. I found it and its mine!” came his response with a smirk.

So they went their way and seconds later, they noticed a crowd of men running and shouting towards them. Immediately the founder of the purse shoved the find into the other traveler’s jacket fearing he might get caught by the mob.

“Run for your lives! The giant bees are coming!” shouted the scared men as they run pass the the now rich traveler and the sorry ass selfish scum.

Moral of the story: Go find a real job if you want money.

Funny, but I'm not sure what the point was.
Were they supposed to be
stung to death by the giant bees?
Or did the bees exist at all?
